The Development and Sustainability Graduate Certificate links faculty teaching and research across nine units and three faculties in the university, and enables students to coordinate their graduate studies so as to concentrate on the tensions between development and sustainability, using a multidisciplinary approach. Students graduate with a regular graduate degree offered by their home units (masters or doctorate), plus a graduate certificate that recognizes their concentration in the field of development and sustainability studies. Students move through their programs in their departments while also being in regular contact with those with common interests in development across the university.
